And no other known Uchiha went to MS that way in the manga, thats visual manga fact, no? As stated....SKIPPED FOREWARD. Anyone has any information that ANY other Uchiha followed that pattern, I'd love to see it, post away.
Keep in mind the 'emotional death' part that many are piggy backing on and assuming that this is the reason that Obito is going straight MS, how does Obito's feeling/emotions outweigh Sasuske's loss of his entire clan and family before his eyes, he gained one whole Tomoe there.
Additionally, Itachi's path to MS isn't visually shown, but Madara & Izunas weren't available until after full Sharingan 3 Tomoe, manga fact and posted.
Notice he only had 1 Tomoe, so he FAST FORWARDED to MS from there.
What Zetsu said explains why Obito went to MS, and not Sasuke when seeing his parents perish.
Nuff said, done.
On another note, its funny that it'll take 2 Uchiha (Obito, Sasuke), Kakashi, Naruto, Kurama, KB, and Hachibi to defeat Madara Maxxed, but 5 Kages failed.
